The high energy demands of myocardium are met through the metabolism of lipids and glucose. Importantly, enhanced glucose utilization rates are crucial adaptations of the cardiac cell to some pathological conditions, such as hypertrophy and ischemia, but the effects of undernutrition on heart glucose metabolism are unknown. Our previous studies have shown… CONTINUE READING
